Annual Heritage Celebration

A Rich Tradition, A Dynamic Heritage, and an Endless Legacy

Heritage Day 2013

What is SBI Annual Heritage Celebration?
Heritage Celebration is an event where a limited number of alumni are invited to honor the graduating BS and MBA students and to share their career experiences with administration, faculty, and students. Alumni of SBI are invited to return to “The Hill” for an occasion filled with fellowship, professional development opportunities, alumnus-student interaction, dining, and entertainment. It also serves as a fundraiser to increase recruitment efforts, faculty development, and technology enhancement for the School of Business and Industry.

We welcome all SBI Alumni, Corporate partners, and high school recruits to participate in Heritage Celebration activities. Corporate partners and high school recruits are invited to join us as we celebrate our past, congratulate our graduating students, and share the vision for our bright future.
